I'd be concerned moreso with longevity and reliability when putting a 4 banger in one of these SUV's... I personally am still skeptical of them being in trucks. Sure a smaller engine gets better gas mileage, but that's when you drive it casually. Push the RPM's into a 'lively' driving range, which is incredibly easy to do in a 4cyl, so that it doesn't take forever and a day to get somewhere, and mpg's plummet.. and fast. Add considerable weight along with it, and then add a trailer on the hitch... even if a 4cyl could do it, it's going to be screaming the whole way, working much harder than any V8 would have to to accomplish the same thing. As with everything in nature, the faster the heartbeat, the shorter the lifespan. Even if you save some mpg's, gone would be the days of a 300k-400k odometer.
The 4 cylinder was designed for truck duty. Actually incorporates a lot of diesel engine tech to make it more durable. Makes power sooner then the v8s.

I prefer the naturally aspirated V8, but I'm not sure if there's any empirical evidence that a modern naturally aspirated V8 will be significantly more durable than a turbocharged I4 or V6/I6 in a light duty application. I mean if we're saying that a NA V8 may implode at 150k miles versus a turbo V6/I6 at 125k miles, then it's not significant enough for me because I will have to replace the engine once for both platforms.

I think if there's no design flaw with the naturally aspirated V8, it's lifetime maintenance and repair costs should be lower than a turbocharged engine.

Good god, back to column shifter... Why not use the console shifter the caddys use? Amazing how they were the last hold outs for a column shifter, got away from it and now back to it.
I for one despise console shifters. They take up valuable room for cups, phone, storage bin, etc. You touch the shifter so little, I prefer the buttons or a column shifter over putting it in the console. Keep it out of the high traffic areas.

I decided that i cannot wait for the new 24 model year to come out, I am going to upgrade my Hoe and put the new version of the Tahoe Premier exhaust tips on. Plus the independent rear Diff, could be an option. They will look great and the old 5.3 will breath a lot better, don't you think?

Why not run some semi-truck style stacks up along the C-pillar?

Planning to rent a 2.7L Silverado crew cab the first chance I get and drive my normal routes for a few days to check out the new 4 cylinder gasser,, who knows it may eventually be offered in the HC Suburban.. although pretty sure it won't supplant my 3.0L Duramax.

I know down here the dealers that have the 4 bangers on the lots are discounting them a lot. Not very popular. I cannot imagine how they will hold up in the middle of summer carrying anything long-term....good to see how some long-term vehicles are doing.

I just checked dealer inventory and there's more 5.3L equipped Silverado 1500's sitting unsold on dealer lots, or in-transit than there are those with the 2.7L motor.

I've been somewhat intrigued with the 2.7L since was announced on the GM Authority website and now slowly warming up to it.

I was vehemently against the the 3.0L Duramax when it was first announced but now I have one, LOL !!
